Master of Arts in Teaching GPA and GRE Score Requirements

A graduate candidate should earn a preferred score of 146 (400 on the old GRE) on the verbal portion of the GRE and a preferred score of 140 (400 on the old GRE) on the quantitative portion of the GRE and have a preferred combined score on these portions of the GRE of 286 (800 on the old GRE).  (Applicants who have already taken other tests such as the GMAT, LSAT, or MAT as part of admission requirements to other programs can submit those scores for consideration in lieu of the GRE.  Preferred scores for admission will be 21 verbal and 27 quantitative on the GMAT, 380 on the MAT, and 144 on the LSAT.)  When these preferred criteria are met, an applicant will use the tables below to determine the Admission Index Score.  A graduate candidate must score at least 8 for admission to the MAT program. The Admission Index Score is a combination of one's derived scores in parts "a" and "b" below.

a.  Use the following table to determine the derived score for the GRE*:

GRE Old Score     GRE New Score     Derived Score
1500-1590                 328-336                         9
1400-1490                 321-327                         8
1300-1390                 315-320                         7
1200-1290                 309-314                         6
1100-1190                 302-308                         5
1000-1090                 297-301                         4
900-990                     292-296                         3
850-890                     289-291                         2
800-840                     286-288                         1
Below 800                 Below 286                      0

b. Use the following tables to determine the derived score for the undergraduate GPA.  If the undergraduate degree was conferred five or fewer years ago, use the derived score in Table 1.  If the undergraduate degree was received more five years ago, Table 2 should be used.

Derived Score for GPA
Table 1 Table 2
Five years ago or less More than five years ago
3.5 or above 9 3.25 or above 9
3.0-3.49 8 2.75-3.24 8
2.85-2.99 7 2.60-2.74 7
2.75-2.84 6 2.50-2.59 6
2.60-2.74 5 2.35-2.49 5
2.40-2.59 4 2.15-2.34 4
2.15-2.39 3 2.10-2.14 3
2.10-2.14 2 2.00-2.09 2
Less than 2.10 0 Less than 2.0 0

The "a" derived score plus the "b" derived score equals the Index Score.
